McCurdy Plantation Horse

DOes anyone own this breed? If so what is temperment? Are they smooth in their gaits? I have read about them and am looking at getting one but just wondering if anyone has any experience with the breed.

I had never heard of them, before your post, so googled the name. Tons of info there for you.

I've seen a few. I'm generally unimpressed. There is a bunch of hype that surrounds them (almost as bad as, say, the hype around Kiger Mustangs). Most of the hype is bunk promoted by the McCurdy boosters (the way most of the hype around the Kigers is bunk, promoted by their boosters).

Evaluate a McCurdy (or a Kiger) the way you'd evaluate any other horse: conformation, way of going, and temperment. Then make your call.

I know a little of the McCurdy Plantation Horse. I know a couple who bought a McCP mare. The horse was a true pain to be around. She had a most unpleasant personality when under saddle. The couple were very experienced horse owners. They ended up taking the mare back to the breeder they bought her from.
